I just posted this on rec.aquaria.freshwater.plants this morning. Anybody
have any opinions or actual info?

I wonder if snails start attacking plants in borderline tanks? I've had 4 or
5 different types of snails and none have ever hurt any of my plants. I've
heard from many people on each side of this. For some people, it seems that
all snails eat all plants. For others, snails don't touch any plants. Maybe
they try to get additional nutrients from plants when the hardness or pH is
too low?
